Cannabis Grow 2FA5E47C 7733 472E B8B3 CF774F8BF0E4

Then each sprouted seed was placed in a split rapid rooter and then into the expanded clay pellets in my new 10 gallon DWC tanks.

The start of week 2!

This week the feed doubled to 40grams of mega crop in the usual 10 gallons of tap water. 

tank #1

Cannabis Grow 9F60DB21 C947 46E5 A37E C11F218DAAE5

This little lady put on some leaf mass for this week and was the first to pop root into the tank. 
The 40grams of Mega Crop had a PPM500 reading of 630 and pH was adjusted down to 6.1. 

Tank #2

Cannabis Grow 1F7BE6AA DBE2 4B48 9E62 06D9153F9B1C

Lady #2 grew a little slower than her sister but also grow a fair bit of leafs this week. The 40grams of Mega Crop produced a PPM500 reading of 630 and pH adjusted down to 6.2. 

One happy benefit of my new larger 10 gallon tanks is that this week the warmest my tanks got was 18 deg C. 

I also have added a humidifier and lower the Mars hydro down to 24” above the canopy now that there are four full leaves on each plant. I will continue to monitor daily and make adjustments to keep the light 24-30” above the canopy.

Ok after a wonderful bowl of white widow in my vaporizer and then reviewing the photos I think tank #2 is showing early signs of root rot and therefore I am going to treat with bleach. 🤠 

My basic rot root prevention is 0.5ml of bleach per gallon twice a week and as you can see from tank #1 it working great. The treatment dose I use is 2ml per gallon which works out to 20ml as it is a 10 gallon tank.  First dose is in the tank and I will add more on Thursday and watch to see what happens to the roots. 

temps and light leaks are a none issue as these are new tanks. Only the clay pellets where reused but cleaned. I am not sure I cleaned the tank 2 rocks enough. 

time will tell....

Few days late with an update!

Well work has been keeping me very busy, but I did change the tanks over this past Sunday. Week 6 begins and the dose of mega crop has increased to 55 grains in each 10 gallon tank. 

Cannabis Grow 575D2368 2F5D 42BF 91F2 A45CBA18D86F

Both ladies are fully into flower and look to be putting on some bud mass. You can see the profound way a brief spell of root rot can effect plant development. Tank 2 is tiny compared to tank 1. 

Now the number 

Tank #1 733ppm (PPM500) and pH adjusted down to 6.1. 

Tank #2 834ppm (PPM500) and pH adjusted down to 6.2. 

This is my first time growing auto flowers and so far am really enjoying it. The root rot in tank #2 is my fault as I am 100% sure I did not clean the clay media enough before using them again. 

plan to switch to these after this grow and use Rockwool instead of clay stones 

Cannabis Grow 53D6B21A 745E 413B 9181 156FEA9FBF25

Now to find somewhere that has them in’s to keep and closed for this darn pandemic. 

Stay safe everyone...

Week #7

Well had to move a bunch of crap around in the grow room this week as I am upgrading to a different tent. I have chosen a 2 in 1 tent to give it a honest go and see how I do at a clone/veg/flower set up. 

Well for this weeks update, tanks drained and fresh tap water added to 10 gallon mark. To the h20 was added 55 grains of Mega crop and Ph down was used to adjust as needed. 

Cannabis Grow 33DDF4F6 6B85 4FCF A4EB 450C720C0F7E

the plants got switched in the tent and you can see how the early root issues effected plant size. One truly is a hulk compared to the other. Both have happy leaves pointing up towards the Mar hydro light. Slowly roots are regrowing on tank number two. 

This weeks number are as follows:

tank #1 ppm500 is 690 and pH adjusted down to 6.3

tank #2 ppm500 is 680 and pH adjusted down to 6.3.

 

Hope everyone is staying safe and grow some great weed for there own enjoyment.
